Idyllic Beach is a very relaxing video of a paradise white sand beach. It was filmed on a tiny tropical island in Southeast Asia. Below you can preview the full 20 minute version in 4K resolution (you may need to select 2160 4K from the “gear icon” to get the best quality. Then you can make the clip full screen to test on your TV or monitor.
This relaxing beach was part of a day trip from the town on Coron, on the island of Busuanga. This is the northernmost island of Palawan; a region of the Philippines world famous for amazing white sand islets and coves. On this day trip we just had one destination: Malcapuya Island. This lovely white sand beach was an idyllic sight. We stayed there for a good few hours, enjoying the crystal clear water, powdery white sand and shade from coconut palm trees.
The relaxing beach was made perfect by the inclusion of hammocks next to small bamboo huts; where we ate our freshly caught barbecue fish lunch in the shade. Then I lay down in one of the hammock just enjoying the view. Bliss! There are lots of different boat tours in Palawan, most involve multiple stops, but Malcapuya Island was good enough to make us want to stay all day.
We have already released another angle from this beach (Paradise Waters) and we are likely to release at least one or two more. There was a nice round bank of sand on the other side of the island, plus a smaller beach with choppy water on the other side of the triangular island. This main beach was certainly the main attraction though- it was a blissful place to relax and unwind.
The colors of the turquoise water and white sand are so alluring that most of us dived straight into the sea as soon as we arrived. Then I just had to go and explore around the rocks you can see in this video. This left me resembling a lobster after lunch- i.e. very sun burnt. Therefore the video of the choppy waters beach was very quick. Unless it loops perfectly we will have to give that video away for free to our customers as a shorter computer screensaver. This is something we like to do when emailing customers about Uscenes news.
What are the download choices for this relaxing beach video?
As always you can choose an MP4 video to loop on your TV screens. These are meant to be used like a screensaver: to make a room feel more relaxing. Alternatively you can actually buy a shorter version as an actual computer screensaver.
The MP4 video comes in 4K Ultra HD resolution for UHD SMART TV screens. We use the latest codec HEVC (H.265). This means that even through the video is 4 times the size of Full HD resolution, the actual file seize is similar, because the new codec has an improved compression algorithm. If your device only supports H.264 just let us know and we will send you a link to that version (approx. 3 times larger). We are finding that nearly all UHD SMART TVs play the H.265 MP4 videos, but a few people’s TVs (presumably older models) need the H.264 version.
If you still have a HD TV set you can download a Full HD version (1080p). This is still an excellent quality video as we have down-scaled the 4K video; squeezing in 4 times the usual detail. All foiotage was edited with 5.1 surround sound, which makes for an immersive experience with a surround sound home theater system.
You can also choose either a Microsoft Windows screensaver or an Apple Mac screensaver for your desktop computer and/or laptop screens. These loop every 3 minutes. The MP4 videos are 20 minutes.
